Sanliurfa Airport
Sanliurfa, or Urfa as it is more commonly know is an important historic city in eastern Turkey. Once thought to be the ancient city of Ur, it’s now acknowledged as of biblical significance as the birthplace of Abraham and Job.More

It is located around fifty miles east of the mighty Euphrates River which contributed to the fertility of the lands often considered to be the site of Eden.

The feel of the city is distinctly Middle Eastern with many inhabitants in traditional dress and the architecture and culture of the city emphasising this. The highlight of the city must be a visit to the Pond of the Holy Fish, another biblical/Islamic site. It was near there that Abraham was thought to have been born in a cave and the cave system is one of Islam’s holiest sites.

The area is now packed with mosques and a park where a beautiful pond, full of supposedly ‘Holy Fish’ live. The pond is thought to be where Nemrut was about to sacrifice Abraham when God turned the pyre into a pond and the burning coals into fish. The pond has been fiercely protected and revered since.
